For the third year in a row, the Peace and Possibility Project has supported the YWCA’s Utah Women’s Well Being Initiative.
The YWCA of Utah has been a voice for women, a force for change and a place for hope since 1906. In May 2013 YWCA Utah began the nonpartisan Utah Women’s Well-Being Initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to strengthen the well-being of Utah women across important dimensions of their lives through research, education, collaboration, and public policy – so that women flourish, their families and communities thrive, and Utah prospers.
In 2018 the YWCA worked to pass 8 bills, hosted staff from five of the six Utah Congressional offices for a tour of campus and informational meeting about the YWCA as part of YWCA USA’s biennial In District Advocacy Day, hosted a sold-out Women’s Policy Conference, and updated the Well Being of Women in Utah Fact Sheet (found here).
Tami and I are proud to support the important work of the Utah Well Being Initiative and the YWCA of Utah.
